Relegation battling Burnley host mid-table Crystal Palace in a Premier League match at Turf Moor.
Victory could lift Burnley out of the relegation zone if Bournemouth lose elsewhere, whilst Palace can go as high as eighth if results elsewhere swing in their favour.
Josh Cullen is suspended for Burnley after he collected his fifth booking of the season in their league defeat at Bournemouth last weekend.
Manuel Benson (ankle), Jordan Beyer (knock) and Lyle Foster (illness) face late fitness tests but Hjalmar Ekdal (knee) and Michael Obafemi (hamstring) remain absent.
Crystal Palace will have Tyrick Mitchell available despite having suffered a dead leg during their loss to Totteham.
Eberechi Eze (hamstring) is a doubt but Dean Henderson (muscle), James Tomkins (calf) and Michael Olise (hamstring) remain absent.
When is Kick-Off?
Brentford host West Ham at Gtech Community Stadium in a 3:00pm GMT kick-off on Saturday 4 November, untelevised live in the UK.
- Burnley are unbeaten in their last five meetings against Palace (W3, D2).
- Crystal Palace have claimed seven points from their last six league visits to Burnley (W2, D1, L3).
- Another draw would mark the first time that Burnley and Palace have played out three consecutive draws in the top-flight.
- Burnley have lost all five home matches this season (L5).
- Palace are looking to avoid suffering three consecutive defeates for the first time since a four-match streak in March 2023.
After producing a lacklustre display in their Carabao Cup defeat at Everton which totally lacked much quality with a single shot on target amidst defensive errors, Burnley must now reset and treat this game as a must-win with a more disciplined performance to keep pace with relegation rivals.
Palace meanwhile will be disappointed to have not got a result at home to Tottenham last weekend after frustrating them for much of the game, yet defensive mistakes proved their downfall against a Tottenham side which only converted one shot onto goal.
Now if Palace can take the positives from that game and just cut out their defensive errors, I can see them pressing hard and testing Burnley’s defensive resilient which is a huge concern for a team who are yet to win at home this season.
Vincent Kompany’s Clarets though are in strong form against Palace but given their current quality, I just can’t see that continuing here.
Prediction: Burnley 0-2 Crystal Palace
Result: Burnley 0-2 Crystal Palace
